Game fours are the toughest to win and the Little Britain Merchants kept the Bruins off the score sheet for the better part of two periods until Todd Winder banged home a loose puck at the side of the Merchants net. Michael Spataro’s point blast landed next to the Merchants goalie Garrett Haden, where Winder was positioned. Then just over the 5 minute mark of the third, Winder picked up a loose puck and his speed carried him around a Merchant defenseman and he knocked the water bottle off with his wrist shot high on Haden’s glove side. Shortly after it was tic tac toe with Mastrangelo to Eastgate to Jarett Smith and the one timer gave the Bruins a commanding 3-0 lead. Smith would add another as it was the second night in a row that Winder and Smith each scored a pair. Brandon Francey made the quality saves that he needed to do, earning a playoff shutout in a 4-0 game and series final. Uxbridge will now play the Clarington Eagles and the dates will be posted ASAP on our web site.
